Forum: etree Subject: Re: some thoughts on band websites...

Sites that make noise when I load them do not usually have my attention for more time than it takes to close them. My friends had a band website made with flash that played a loud drum intro when it was first loaded. My main complaint was that the sound was too loud and had to be turned off in order to navigate the site (not to mention that I almost always listen to audio through the computer, so the website meshed badly with everything!) My second complaint is that with a flash site, I cannot bookmark the Tour Dates page (for instance) or email someone a link straight to that page.

ps- that Herbie site is SO hard to figure out, and it makes noise the moment it loads. Seems like a terrible way to introduce a concept to the average web-user, although it might be a blast of great fun for fans and friends. Personally I don't care for video games very much.

About the bookmarking of flash pages... on my site (you remember, www.somebodyscloset.com) the title of the page after the web site name works...ie. for Somebody's Closet shows, the page is titled "SHOWS", so type www.somebodyscloset.com/shows and that will get you straight there. Try it on the site you're talking about. It might work for them.

Thanks for the posts about the herbie website. True, it is a flash site, so you can't bookmark the dates page. However, when the page loads you can use the menu at the lower right corner of the site. This allows you to access each page within the website without having to drive the van around. In response to the sound, the site does start playing music right away... kind of like a car CD player. It is streaming audio, however, and you can press stop. The player is in the lower left corner.

Also, if you want a quick way to access our tour dates, you can bookmark our jambase dates or myspace.com page. Both are updated regularly. Same with our sonicbids press kit. www.sonicbids.com/herbie2.

Thanks for the comments!
